Eco Prim Grip was used to enhance the bonding of the 465 m2 of Ultraplan M20 Plus self-leveling underlayment that was poured in these areas. By using Ultraplan M20 Plus, the team eliminated the need to shotblast the concrete substrate, saving the project the cost of additional labor and reducing the time that would have been necessary for surface preparation.
The site-finished wood planks were glued down with Ultrabond ECO 975 adhesive. The adhesive’s low-odor formula, which is based on rapidly renewable materials, with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC), made it the ideal product for use in a residential setting. The wood flooring was installed in living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms (optional), hallways and foyers. In all, the team installed 2,787 m2 of wood flooring. The kitchen backsplashes were tiled with white porcelain tile using Ultraflex 1 mortar and Ultracolor Plus grout. The same white tile was used in some of the condo bathrooms. In other condos, a cream-colored 30 x 61 cm tile was placed on the walls and floors of the bathrooms. These tiles were also set with Ultraflex 1. The bathroom floors were grouted with Ultracolor Plus, while the bathroom walls were grouted with Kerapoxy CQ 100%-solids epoxy grout to resist wet conditions. MAPEI’s Keracaulk S caulk was used to seal all of the transitions and 90-degree angles in the showers.
The balconies that add to the ambiance of each apartment were also tiled. The tiles were set with Ultraflex 1 and grouted with Ultracolor Plus.
